To restrict locations appearing in your interfaces that are beneath a certain level of geocoding quality, the interface can be filtered by "Location type".

This option can be found under Interfaces > Data Settings > Location Types as shown below:


MetaLocator uses the same location types as Google's Geocoding API to categorize accuracy into one of 4 strata as described below:

Quoting https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geocoding/intro

  • "ROOFTOP" indicates that the returned result is a precise geocode for which we have location information accurate down to street address precision.
  • "RANGE_INTERPOLATED" indicates that the returned result reflects an approximation (on a the same road) interpolated between two precise points (such as intersections). Interpolated results are generally returned when rooftop geocodes are unavailable for a street address.
  • "GEOMETRIC_CENTER" indicates that the returned result is the geometric center of a result such as a polyline (for example, a street) or polygon (region).
  • "APPROXIMATE" indicates that the returned result is approximate.
